Kitchen discos to Twitter parties: The celebs who helped make 2020 more bearable

There's no doubt Burgess's listening parties have helped a great deal during tough times, and with live music still off the cards it looks like that will continue into 2021 - we'll see you on New Year's Day for Fatboy Slim and the oh so apt, You've Come a Long Way, Baby.

Strictly Come Dancing is always joyous but this year's series, which producers managed to pull off despite all the coronavirus restrictions, was the sparkly Saturday night TV we needed to keep spirits lifted.

Claudia Winkleman's magnificent fringe aside, the highlight of 2020 was of course seeing comedian Bill Bailey lift that glitterball trophy alongside his professional dance partner, Oti Mabuse.

And it's not just coronavirus restrictions they've made a stand on, also taking part in Black Lives Matter protests and using their platform to call for better pay for nurses and to support Joe Biden.

We'll Meet Again was referenced by the Queen during her address on the coronavirus pandemic in April, and the singer teamed up to re-record the song with Katherine Jenkins (pictured above) to raise funds for charity.

This hasn't been released yet, so it's perhaps a bit early to be calling him a cultural hero, but the idea of a former hard man of the boyband world discovering a love for literature as he turned 50 is so heartwarming it had to be included.
